Both sides will be looking to get back to winning ways as Brighton & Hove Albion host Wolves at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday

Both sides will be looking to get back to winning ways as Brighton & Hove Albion host Wolves at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday.

With the Seagulls game against Tottenham postponed at the weekend, their last game was eleven days ago as they drew against Southampton, while Wolves were defeated 1-0 by leaders Manchester City.

Brighton

With Potter’s side having an extra weekend off following the postponement of their scheduled match with Spurs due to a covid outbreak, his side endured a third consecutive draw following their trip to Southampton.

Neal Maupay struck late yet again – this time in the 98th minute – to earn his side a point, though it means that Brighton have just one victory in their last eleven Premier League games which is cause for concern, despite sitting in 11th place.

It doesn’t get any easier for the Seagulls who have Manchester United, Brentford and Chelsea next to conclude their December fixture list, though are just two points behind eighth-placed Leicester City and with a game in hand.

Wolves

Bruno Lage’s side fell short against league leaders Manchester City thanks to a Raheem Sterling penalty, as their four-game goalless run continues.

To make matters worse, Mexican striker Raul Jimenez saw himself receive two yellow cards in the space of one minute to reduce the visitors to 10 men shortly after the break, with no way of containing Guardiola’s side in the end.

With just one goal in their last six league games, there is cause for concern at Wolves having slipped to 9th place and now four points off seventh-placed Tottenham who have two games in hand.

The last two encounters with Brighton have brought nine goals in total, with the most recent being a 2-1 victory for Wolves back in May along with the 3-3 draw at the Amex in January, so this one should promise goals.

Team news

Brighton are still without Joel Veltman, Adam Webster and Lewis dunk who all remain injured, with Shane Duffy now joining them due to his one-game suspension.

The likes of Adam Lallana, Danny Welbeck, Steven Alzate and Jeremy Sarmiento all also are side-lined, along with Leandro Trossard who came off injured in their draw with Southampton.

As for Wolves, Raul Jimenez will be out following his suspension after the City game though Hwang Hee-chan should return following his brief spell out.

Pedro Neto, Jonny and Yerson Mosquera all remain out of contention for the foreseeable future, though Francisco Trincao and Daniel Podence may be called upon for this fixture.

Brighton vs Wolves – kick off at 7:30pm (UK time) on Wednesday 15th December 2021.
